Chapter 9 - Philippians; One Sentence Ten Clauses:


Biblical Literacy Class Chapter 9 - 08/01/2021 “ Philippians” Mark continued the study of Philippians and the theme of Philippians 1: 27-29,  Only let your manner of life be worthy of the gospel of Christ. In this weeks lesson, Philippians 2:1-4, Mark addresses Paul explaining what is required to live a life worthy of the gospel of Christ. Such traits are manifested in common sharing in spirit, being liked minded, having love, being one in spirit and of one mind. Mark cited 2 Corinthians 1:5, for just as we share abundantly in the suffering of Christ, so also we share in the Victory. Continuing to Philippians 2:2, Mark addresses Christ’s joy being complete by being of the same mind, having love in full accord and being like minded.. Same love, translates to having same love for God and for each other. Be sure to watch the Abilene Music Montage which exemplifies all one, one sole. As the class ends Philippians 2: 3-4 drew focus on doing nothing out of selfish ambition but rather in humility value others above yourself.  Don’t look to your own interest, but each of you to the interest of others. Points to Ponder Living in the ethics of the Cross   Philippians 1:27, 2:1 The importance of Unity               Philippians 2:2 The Importance of “Otherness”    Philippians 2: 3-4
